An Armadillo? Well it's Monday of course and you all know that Monday's are Bitten By The Bug 2 challenge day right? (And Oh What A Challenge This Was, lol!)
So what does an Armadillo have to do with BBTB2 you ask! Well my Lovely Design Team Sister Krista, chose the Armadillo from the Birthday Bash cartridge! Well I didn't have the Birthday Bash cart so Krista decided to let us also use a Whimsical Bird from any cartridge if you didn't have the Armadillo,
but I knew I had seen an Armadillo somewhere..................
And Lo and Behold...........................................
I found it on the Imagine More Cartridge for the Imagine!
And since I don't really use my Imagine as much as should (to rectify the cost of Having to Have It, lol!) So what better way to take on a challenge then putting your boots on and jumping in with four feet (get it, the Armadillo has boots on!) LOL!
And "Just Because".......................
I had to add some Faux Stitching and bling to my card with the Teal Bling on the scallops! Everything is popped and layered and inked. To make the card base I used the Bloom Lite cartridge and welded two scallops together and then cut the Red scallop and embossed it with the Swiss Dots folder and the "Your One Of A Kind" and "Hi" is from the Wild Card cartridge. Even added a googly eye for Mr. Armadillo (Ken's idea, lol)!
Now I won't lie to you all, I really do like all the layering with paper much more then using the Imagine. It is alot faster to do it with the Imagine and it takes all the guess work out of picking papers but it still doesn't have the dimension that the good ole fashioned layering does (but it does save some time if your in a hurry) And that's "Just my opinion", lol!
Well everyone, I sure hope you take on the weekly challenge with us over at BBTB2. And remember, if you don't have Birthday Bash or an Imagine with the Imagine More cartridge, please feel free to use any cartridge with a whimsical bird on it! And we all know that there are PLENTY of Birds on all those cartridges! So have fun with it, I Sure Did, LOL!
Thanks for stopping by, please leave me a comment letting me know how you like your Imagine, if you have one, I'm just curious if your happy with yours and if you use it alot or think you just got caught up in the hype of something new. Even if you don't have an Imagine Please leave your comments, I LOVE reading each and every one of them! Have a great week and hope to see you at the Challenge!
((Hugs)) and Take Care, Theresa
